Sonic and the Secret Rings will undoubtedly get into the top ten next week, but it might struggle to knock Final Fantasy XII off the top spot. Sonic and the Secret Rings is a really rubbish name, isnâ€™t it? The original title – Sonic Wild Fire – was much nicer.
If a new Final Fantasy wasnâ€™t enough RPG goodness to fill your boots, then youâ€™re in luck as there are another two out this week – Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2 on PlayStation 2 and Deep Labyrinth for DS. The former is available in a limited edition pack with soundtrack CD and music cards, while the latter is a first person 3D affair. It started out as a Japan-only mobile phone game, a fact that publishers 505 Games seem to think will make people want to buy it.
Depending on who you believe, Xiaolin Showdown and The Ant Bully on Wii are also out – Play.com says they are, Game says no. Does anybody care either way? Nope, didnâ€™t think so.
Next week, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories on PlayStation 2.
